Chatom Vineyards Chardonnay Calaveras County 2005

Member Review by jdot:

An interesting aspect of this wine is that it's not aged in oak barrels. This allows the full flavor of the chardonnay grape to come alive. The result is a full-bodied but fruity wine without the oakiness traditionally associated with chardonnay. I paired it with a rice, beans and barbecue chicken meal I made. Both the sweetness of the barbecue sauce and the heat of some cayenne pepper brought out different aspects of the wine. I would definitely buy this again.
